+1 This is what I do although, at the end, I will let my razor sit in barbicide for a hour then rinse it off and put it where I will pick it up to use it the next morning.+1
Why mess with a proven method? A soft toothbrush, hot water and dish soap or Scrubbing Bubbles followed by alcohol will do the trick.
You could run it when there's no dishes in there, just the razor(s) in the silverware holder.One of the steps I use to sanitizing razors that are new to me involves steam.
I dont own a dishwasher but then again being a bit of a germaphobe I couldnt put them in there anyway. Just the thought of the nasties from the razor dancing across my dishware gives me chills...
I'm sorry - but this is just plain incorrect.Alcohol doesn't kill viruses, either does scrubbing bubbles.
With these cleansers you are hoping that you happen to actually scrub the virus off of the razor, soaking the razor in Scrubbing Bubbles, Alcohol, or Lysol (home strength version) will not remove Hep C for example. You are at best sanitizing the razor but by no means making it sterile.I'm sorry - but this is just plain incorrect.
I've no disagreement with your suggestion of using Barbicide, but Scrubbing bubbles does in fact inactivate viruses. Alcohol does inactivate some viruses. Technically viruses can't be "killed" because they are not exactly "alive" as we know it. They straddle that line between chemistry and life, between molecular composition and organic organism.
While scrubbing bubbles isn't as effective against a vast array of "cooties" like Barbicide is, Lysol is every bit as effective as Barbicide.
But what folks have to remember is that all you have to do is wash the razor off completely with an effective cleanser. It's a non-porous object and the cooties don't soak into the plating. Wash it off completely and there's nothing left there to "catch".
Certainly nothing wrong with going to extremes if it makes one "feel better", but lets not dis a tried and true method that's been in use here for years and years on hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of razors by thousands and thousands of members with nary a single case of cooties caught from a razor.
